You’ve probably seen waist trainers before on some of your favorite influencers on social media. Or maybe you already have one of these high-compression garments in your lingerie drawer. If you’ve ever worn one, you know that they cinch your waist, giving you additional curves where nature may have fallen short.
You can wear a waist trainer during your workout if you are able to breathe and workout properly. Some people have to work their way up to working out with it on during intense workouts. If you feel short of breath or dizzy please take it off and resume wearing it for light cardio, sauna use, or daily use under your clothes until you are use to it.
Wearing Your Waist Trainer At The Gym
Hey, if you’re serious about dropping pounds, you know it takes working out, too. Make a waist trainer your secret weight-loss weapon. Instead of wearing it simply for a sleeker profile, why not take it up a notch and wear it during workouts? There are variety of benefits to exercising while wearing a waist trainer:
Wearing a waist trainer improves your posture. When your shoulders are back and your chest is lifted, you look taller and slimmer because you’re standing straight. That type of posture is what you want to maintain when walking on the treadmill or doing standing exercises such as shoulder presses and biceps curls.
A waist trainer also supports your lower back, which is especially helpful if you’ve had back pain in the past. The trainer can help protect you from straining while you’re exercising.
Increase in the number of calories expended
. A waist trainer made from fabric such as Lycra®, Spandex or latex does more than compress — it stimulates thermal activity in your midsection. That means you sweat more and burn more calories during a workout.
Wearing a waist trainer immediately makes you look slimmer and fitter — and that boosts your confidence at your gym. That confidence may encourage you to try a new workout class or to challenge yourself in new ways (how about tackling the Gauntlet next time you work out?).
